others escaped that night under armed escort to another house nearby rented by the u.s. government. the americans evacuated from the consulate about a mile away, would have come along this road and up to this gate thinking they were coming to a safe refuge, never dreaming that it, too, was about to come under attack from mortars aimed with pinpoint accuracy. so accurate that two more americans then died. security officials say the skill of that assault suggests a well-organized extremist group was responsible and one name tops the list-- ansar al-sharia, an armed radical group that had imposed rough islamic law in parts of benghazi until it was finally chased out of town last month by angry crowds. colonel hamid hassi, a senior libyan army officer told us he believes american intelligence knows exactly where they've gone. "the americans are watching ansar al-sharia all the time" he said "from the sky." in fact, the colonel showed us video of the drones he said were circling just last week. asked, though, if he expected a u.s. missile strike soon he said "that would be a mistake."

to treat a disease-- and that's illegal. for example, the government says this label for a product containing vitamins and a compound called dim complex is legal because it claims to boost the immune system and support overall health but it does not say it treats a specific disease. this label for a product containing algae and an herb called heal-all is illegal because it claims to treat diseases including herpes and the flu. melissa haffner was the lead analyst. >> this report raises questions about the extent to which these claims are truthful and not misleading. because f.d.a. doesn't have the ability to look at the substantiation behind the claims, there's really no way for them or consumers to know whether or not the claims are truthful. >> reporter: the f.d.a. has only limited power to regulate supplements because federal law classifies them as food not drugs. products are required to be safe but the f.d.a. only monitors them after they're on the market. when it comes to proof, supplement makers are only required to say research has been done, they are not required to show i
